Resident Evil 2

Yoshiaki Hirabayashi, who produced the Resident Evil HD remaster, pitched a Resident Evil 2 remake to Capcom today.

“Hello RE fans! This is H [Hirabayashi] again!” Hirabayashi said in a post on the official Resident Evil Facebook page. “Right after the RE HD Remaster project was finished, I actually started putting together my ideas for this ‘RE2 Project’. So, I just brushed it up and went to see my boss to present the basic concept of the project already…”

The picture included reads “Biohazard 2” (Resident Evil‘s Japanese title), with the words “New Rebirth Project” below it.

Hirabayashi teasingly did not share the outcome of his pitch.
